Garnacha, Syrah, Garrut. The grapes come from a mixture of old and younger vines on complex limestone, lime and slate soils. Aged for 5 months in varying sizes of French barrels. The palate is balsamic with a core of wild red fruit, a hint of incense and smoke, quite spicy and something Rhone-ish through the small percentage of Syrah. This is juicy, medium-bodied with fine tannins combining minerality from slate, granite and limestone. Easy to drink!

John Muir famously said, “The mountains are calling and I must go,” which is a fitting slogan for Cara Nord, a joint project of Tomas Cusine, Xavier Cepero and Eric Solomon located in the Sierra Prades. Here elevation, UV exposure and climate combine to create a refreshing take on the “classic GSG blend.” The second G stands for Garrut, an indigenous variety frequently confused with, or a local name for, Monastrell. There are partisans on both sides of the debate.
